Why University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics

Entering into the residency search process, I was set on pursuing a residency at an innovative academic medical center with an emphasis on clinical excellence. I knew University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics possessed nationally ranked specialties, a track record of success for their residents, and three different degree options for HSPAL residents. When I was researching the mission statements of various hospitals, University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics's mission stood out–Changing Medicine. Changing Lives. As someone hoping to innovate and educate as an administrator, I knew a hospital focused on change would empower me to succeed.

However, I was sold to the program when I met the staff. I chose UI Hospitals & Clinics because of the people. When I met the team, one word reiterated in my mind– genuine. The staff and leaders radiate care for their residents. They want you to succeed. As someone pursuing an administrative residency focused on servant leadership, I wanted to be in a supportive yet challenging environment. The leadership team at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics emphasizes individualized training. They take the time to assess residents' strengths and challenge their aspirations.

The mission of UI Hospitals & Clinics compelled me, but it was the people at UI Hospitals & Clinics who inspired me. This is why I chose University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.

Favorite Part of Iowa City

I have enjoyed exploring the different restaurants. Iowa City is vibrant and has a diverse array of food options to explore!
